Step one: SCRUB WELL and let dry!
This solid wood beauty was given to me by a neighbor who was downsizing her stash, thanks Cara. I knew it had loads of possibility as I have done a few similar vintage coffee tables like it. A recent one in farmhouse whites and this one below many moons ago.

Step two: sand all the old finish off the top.

Another Aged Wood Accelerator Growth Ruler

Another aged wood growth ruler was custom ordered so thought I would share again the process used to create it.

Then using Muddaritaville Studio growth ruler stencilRustoleum's Chalked ultra matte paint in linen white was stenciled on. both sides were sealed with Varathane's diamond wood finish clear top coat in semi gloss. Three coats were applied for the perfect finish.

It is now proudly displayed in a jungle theme nursery, thanks for your order Kaylin.

Here is a video of yet another one I did but adding a white wash over the whole ruler then more varathane to seal
